Maddie McLain had a standout freshman year as a cross country runner for the Eastern York Golden Knights.
She was one of the top finishers in last year’s girls’ PIAA meet, and was named a GameTimePA All-Star. All told, McLain burst onto the scene to place fifth in her first YAIAA meet in 20:21.26, followed by a ninth-place finish at districts. She improved on those times to place 23rd in 19:47 at the state championships.
